Lilly Pulitzer for Target Shift Dress Exchange

I'll be honest since the Lilly Pulitzer for Target launch, I've bee thinking nothing except Lilly, Lilly, Lilly. I've been on a search to collect every piece that I wanted. And when I think I've found everything I want, I discover one more piece I NEED! Right now that's the Nosie Posey espadrilles in a size 8.5, if anyone can help me out with that :)

The hardest thing to acquire is the shift dresses. They are beautiful and everyone wants them and not only does every person need one, but every person needs all 7!!! I will have 4 from the collection, See Ya Later, Happy Place, Upstream, and Fan Dance (on the way). I love them all as many women do! The problem was the launch was chaotic and most people weren't able to even see the pieces let alone try them on to see what sizes they needed. The merchandise was cleared from the stores in minutes and everyone was left to pay exorbitant prices on eBay. Multiple groups were started on Facebook to try to get the goods to Lilly Lovers across the country for reasonable prices. I am truly grateful for these group and belong to quite a few!

Here are the prints and shift dresses everyone is in search of! The Lilly Pulitzer shift dress is a classic shape in a fun and happy print!!!

First up is Nosie Posey, a floral favorite for everyone. The colors are bright and vibrant and there are hidden kitties in the flowers!

Upstream is perfect for summer with a navy and white nautical feel. It features a fish print that everyone is sure to love!

See Ya Later is a bright pink dress with alligators! I love how the animals are subtle enough, so it just looks like a fun floral fabric. I have this for myself and the matching one for my daughter. We will be debuting it on her 3rd birthday!

Fan Dance features flamingos! Who can resist flamingos in the summer time?!? 

My Fans is a beautiful blue and pink color that's vibrant and fun in the shape of fans! This one is truly a Lilly "fan" favorite and probably one of the hardest dresses to find!!!

My personal favorite is Happy Place. I love yellow and this has a fun lion print. This really does put a smile on your face as soon as you put it on (at least it does for me)!!!

The 7th dress in the collection is Giraffeeey! This is made from linen and stands out from the others because of the different material. As you scroll through all 7 dresses, don't you want to own them all too?!?

I noticed many women were listing shift dresses to trade or sell to try to get the entire collection and to make other women happy that weren't able to snag one in the store! And if you're not checking the groups every minute of every day, you're missing out. You need to be quick to snag those shift dresses, they're gone in seconds! So, I had a crazy idea to create a thread where everyone lists the shift dresses they have to trade or sell and what they are searching for. I thought it'd be a great way to orchestrate multi-person trades to get everyone in the shifts they needed and desired!

The document kept growing and getting more complex, so it became a Google Doc spreadsheet that everyone can view easily! Here's the link to it. Green is what individuals have and white is what they want. It currently contains individuals from the Facebook group "Lilly Pulitzer Target Resale and Trade" and "Don't Buy Target Lilly from Scalpers". I hope every woman is able to rid themselves of the shifts that do not work for them and acquire the shifts they love and wear dearly. I will also be examining the document for possible trades and messaging individuals through Facebook if I see any viable trades.

Happy trading Lilly Lovers!
